What you allow, is what will always continue. Guard your heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. You are the master of your own destiny. Refuse to be a victim of circumstances. Do not give anyone the power to control your feelings and emotions. You have the power to decide what controls you and what don’t. Let go of anyone or anything that doesn’t give you peace of mind. Rule your mind or it will rule you.
Take a look at four (4) ways to be mentally strong;
1. Refuse to be a victim.
How you see yourself is very important. You are a reflection of your thoughts. If you always see yourself as a success, you are likely to succeed at almost everything you do. But, when you see yourself as the victim, you will always be a victim of circumstances. Refuse to be a victim. It’s a choice only you can make. Your decision to always be victorious will set the boundary between you and failure. It will set the tone with which people relate with you. You will be seen as someone of value and importance. And no longer be taken for granted. See yourself as a victor not a victim.
2. Be kind to yourself.
No one is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes and fall short of doing the right things. This is what makes us human. Life is for living; and not to be stressed over. Always be kind to yourself and forgive your mistakes and shortcomings. When you learn to encourage yourself, you will get to understand that you are your biggest supporter. When you don’t help yourself move forward, you won’t be able to live your life to the fullest. Sometimes the thing holding you back is all in your head. Let go of guilt. Be kind to yourself. Forgive yourself.
3. Don’t compare yourself to others.
Life is a journey not a destination. Everyone has their own race to run. Don’t underestimate yourself by comparing yourself with others; because you have no idea what their journey is all about. Comparison steals happiness. It prevents you from seeing how truly unique and special you are. Don’t compare yourself to others. Compare yourself to the person you were yesterday. Strive to be a better version of yourself. You are your only competition.
4. Forget what people think about you.
Do not deny who you are, or who you want to become just because someone has a problem with it. You are responsible for your own life. You are the one that takes the punches when life hits hard; not others. Forget what others think about you. If they don’t encourage you to aspire to the person you want to become, let them go. You are the master of your own destiny. What others think about you doesn’t count. It’s what you think about yourself that really matters.
